Bob often had trouble getting those line right. At some point, he dropped the "New York City" for shows in other places. He kept on saying "Cleveland" even when the played the Coliseum -- which is pretty far from the city, actually. I recall in one of the Sept 1990 shows he mistakenly said "Philly fillies" before, without missing a beat, correcting himself. Philly was the next stop on the tour.

I was listening to a 1978 UCLA Pauley Pavilion (Westwood CA) show from 1978 and Bob inserts "and it's T for Studio City," which I found pretty funny as it is a good distance from Westwood. Maybe their hotel was in Studio City ...

I have to politely disagree with you there! What else would he say? "Richfield girls"? All five of them would be working the concessions and wouldn't hear him. What else is around the Coliseum? North Royalton girls? Those Hinckley buzzards start lookin good?

Cleveland is the correct reference. Although he could have said "T for Cleveland-Akron," which would have the right meter ...

I would have given anything to hear Bob sing, "Them North Royalton fillies start lookin' good!" or "T in Akron/Canton."

Which makes me wonder: Did they play Minglewood at the Rubber Bowl, and if so, what did he say?
